BlackBerry 10 simulator on 1600 x 900 laptop

Hi there,


I've just downloaded and ran the BlackBerry 10 dev alpha simulator and running it under VMWorkstation .. the problem I have though is the screen size is huge and on my laptop with 1600 x 900 screen it doesn't fit on completely, even in landscape, and hence to use and scroll around is really painful as you have to keep hot-key out to the main then scroll the image then hit back in etc.


Is there no way to reduce the size or resolution of the simulator in the virtual machine?


Best regards,

Please provide that ASAP as it is very painful.
